Abstract

Passive mode locking of a bisectional GaInN quantum well laser diode was confirmed with external-cavity geometry. Optical pulses of 3 ps duration were produced by controlling the reverse-bias voltage applied to a saturable absorber section. These are the shortest optical pulses ever generated from GaN-based laser diodes.
